# A loaf of bread has a mass of 500 g and volume of 2500 cm^3. What is the density of the bread?

Oct 2, 2017

The density of the bread is $\text{0.2 g/cm"^3}$.

#### Explanation:

$\text{density"="mass"/"volume}$

The mass and volume are given in the question:

$\text{mass=500 g}$

$\text{volume=2500 cm"^3}$

Plug the known values into the density formula and solve.

$\text{density"=("500 g")/("2500 cm"^3)="0.2 g/cm"^3}$ (rounded to one significant figure)
